MuayTaiGuy - you asked how can this be? In the US wouldn't this be Treason? I don't understand how a group can operate a system of government such as a court of law inside another nation.

There are a number of native american tribes/nations who run their own governments within the USA. Their reservations are not considered for certain legal purposes as part of our country. They have a certain amount of sovereignty.

Nevertheless, I find this Sharia court thing highly disgusting.
